Henry could return on Boxing Day

Henry could return on Boxing Day

Karl Henry could return against Wigan on Boxing Day according to Wolves boss Mick McCarthy.

The skipper tore medial ligaments against Blackpool on November 20th and wasn't expected to return until well into 2011.

But a speedy recovery has put him in contention for a quick return.

'Karl's going to be fit quicker than any of us originally thought, but he has no chance of being fit for this weekend,' McCarthy said in the Express & Star.

He added: 'As to whether he'll be ready for Boxing Day, I don't know yet. I'm not ruling him out.'

No response to this? I think Henry has been tremendous for us since he joined, continues to improve, and whether we like it or not his name is already inked in on the team sheet whenever he is fit. Mick made him captain remember. Once fit he will walk back into the team and I will always consider him to be one of our unsung heroes.

I agree that we need an enforcer to strengthen our midfield. I am a little nervous that he is coming back for the Wigan game though. I think his rash tackle on Gomez in October cost us at least five points (that match and the next one, against WHU) and derailed the team. With the cushion of the extra points we would have played with more confidence in subsequent matches, thereby stacking up more points. Perhaps we would not have done any better against the top teams (but, as could have gained points in all of those games, with less pressure, we might have scored a goal or two) but we would probably have improved our showing in the games against Bolton, Blackpool and Blackburn (and even Sunderland). He still has some way to go to redeem himself in my eyes.

Well, after all the furor surrounding us at the start of the season, no one, Henry himself I assume, can explain away that ridiculous tackle at Wigan- I think he was enjoying the 'enforcer' profile and he had got away with some tackles prior to that one that usually would have seen cards shown- he was an ever present though when fit, was made captain, I would say that after the games he sat out suspended and now through this injury, collectively he will have had enough time to miss his football and will not want to be missing anymore. I think he can keep his head together- we don't have anyone like him so just to have him close to fit is a huge boost considering our injury list.

Nice insight, NYCW. It's a bit worrying, though, if that is his mindset. I presume he has had a right bollocking from MM and will not do it again. To pick up the point I was making in my previous blog, his action not only cost us points in itself but it also affected the legitimate combativeness of the team.
